Now that the parties have ended, the leftovers have been tossed, and the decorations packed away, it’s time to start looking forward to things to come in the new year. The first of the year always makes me want to get organized so that I can plan ahead with an uncluttered mind and living space. I had a packed holiday season with my annual hosting of Thanksgiving, planning my daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday party and getting ready for Christmas. Once we made it through the all of the celebrations, my husband and I tackled a major decluttering of our basement and I’m still working on shredding 20 years worth of files. When all was said and done, I had little time and even less desire to write blog posts.
Now that 2015 is here, I’m ready to slow down, simplify my life, and enjoy the view. My mantra for the year is “make everyday count”. I want to be consistent with posting to my blog, but I also want to consistently attend my yoga class as well as start back with my weekly bible study. For me, moving into the new year is about having a life of balance. Prioritizing those things that bring value to my life and eliminating the things that don’t and making sure that my mind, body and spirit are nurtured in the process.
What’s your goal for 2015?
